Where to Find an Attorney for Specific Legal Advice
Arizona has three legal aid organizations which cover different regions of the state.
- Community Legal Services (800) 852-9075 covers Maricopa, Mohave, Yavapai, Yuma and LaPaz Counties.
- Southern Arizona Legal Aid (800) 640-9465 covers southern Arizona.
- DNA People’s Legal Services (800) 789-7287 covers northern Arizona.
All legal service programs in Arizona differ, and their criteria for accepting cases vary. The legal aid organizations above all have the same criteria of income restrictions and legal status requirements, but do have varying priorities.
To find out about more Arizona resources that may be able to assist you, you can contact LegalLEARN, Legal Information & Resources at (866) 637-5341.
Individuals may apply for free and reduced fee legal services by using the "Access To Justice Online Intake System" through AZLawHelp.
If the legal services program in your area cannot assist you, you may be able to find a lawyer through lawyer referral services in Maricopa County (602) 257-4434 or Pima County (520) 623-4625.
The State Bar also maintains a listing of all Arizona attorneys on their website, and certifies “specialists” in eight legal areas. (Not all attorneys seek such certification, however.) Lists of specialists can also be found at the State Bar of Arizona’s website.
I am a full time college student in Arkansas. My girlfriend and 4 year old son moved back to Phoenix to live with her dad and his family. I receive VA benefits to attend college and with rent and other items. I have also started working part time, at night, as the money I receive doesn't cover everything. I live very modestly as I don't have much time to do things. I received court papers suing for child support. She and I had already discussed our financial situation. She works full time with the Laveen school system. I try to assist with money but it's very hard. What can I do?
I am the recipient of the child support that my son is to recieve. I am not working but going to school full time, my son's father had put down on the paper work when he filed that I was making minimum wage and said that it was mandatory to have that down regardless if I was working or not. Is this true. He also says that it was mandatory that he gets to put my son on his taxes every year for four years is this true?
CAN CHILD SUPPORT TAKE THE MONEY I RECEIVE FROM A LAW SUIT
I am applying for Cash assistance as I am having some financial trouble. I know that normally the Child support division goes after the other parent to pay back the CA payments, but the other parent is on SSI, which I know by Arizona law, she cannot be gone after for child support. How will this work in this case? Will she be gone after to pay back the CA payments even though she is on SSI?
I have been paying child support for close to ten years and not doing a very good job at it. However, I just found out, through DNA, that the child is not mine and have written proof from the lab showing this fact. What can I do to finally stop the payments legally?
Hello, Is there a basic description of what child support is supposed to cover in the state of AZ? My ex is insisting that I pay her more than the child support and alimony that she receives, which is $5,500 per month. She wants me to pay for the kid's cell phones, cars, etc. I have explained to her that I do not agree to these things and these are not part of child support. Any feedback would be useful.
My ex husband is refusing to pay the court ordered child support on the dates that were specified. He stated that he had "talked" to a lawyer and was told that he would not be late until 30 days had past since the last payment. Is this correct?
My brother owes back child support and has a current warrant because of it. If he pays his child support in full will they still make him serve time or can the warrant be lifted at the time he pays the child support?
My ex mostly has custody of our four-year-old boy. She quit her job the same week we went to court and then got hired back once child support was determined based on her not working and living with her cousin. Now, her green card has expired. She did receive a temporary extension to March 2015. She received her card through a fraud marriage and lied to immigration about her address, of course all this was found out through court. If she does not get her card renewed can she legally take our son to Mexico and continue to collect child support as she continually threatens to do?
when a child turns 18 & has graduated but is a fulltime college student will the court even continue to require support for that child?
